2012 A Scrappy Year


Do you ever look back at a year
and wonder where it went
and if you
accomplished anything?
2012 feels kind of like a blur
it sped by so fast.

As far as
quilty things
I was feeling a little concerned
that I had much more starts than finishes.
It helped to go through my pictures
to remember I actually did
finish a few things.
Tell me if you see a theme here?
Farmers Wife Quilt Along
50 blocks
all from my scraps.
 Modern Chevron Baby Quilt
that I pulled from my blue and cream scraps.
a gift for a special friend :)
 Festive Cheer
A great project to use up
some of my red and green scraps.
 I did get all of the sections pieced together
but, I'm still working on hand appliqueing
the 60 circle centers.
 Great Granny
I loved being part of Lori Holt's quilt along
and using up some of those bright and happy scraps.
 Wild Thing
a quilt for a grand daughter.
 Oh My Stars
a guild challenge quilt
which helped me use up
even more scraps!
Yes, the theme for 2012
was
USE WHAT YOU HAVE!
 I did make a few other projects other than quilts.
A crocheted Chevron Afghan
for my daughter.
 A few wool projects that were gifts
 and charity auction donations.
 and matching pajama pants
for the grandbabies and their stuffed animals.
 In 2012 I joined
several Block of The Month
projects yet to be completed
My New Word I've selected for
2013
is
FINISH!
 It's been so fun to be a Bee's Knees member
 and to make blocks each month
for someone special.
And I'm really looking forward to seeing
what Lori will reveal
for the next rows
on her
Row Along
2013 here we come!

it is great to use up scraps isn't it. I have so many to make that at times I think I need to put aside ideas not yet started and think it over and get the scrap basket out and use it up!!

I do hope to use up more of what I have instead of adding to the stash. Love that you did that last year. Great projects.
